Subject: One of those adult stories now possibly more suitable as a children's book?
You know how Huckleberry Finn is basically an adult book now read mostly by children? This is kind of similar: it's a children's book with the occassional digression into details suited to adult readers (like tecnhichalites on how the church works in an area).

The story itself is basically a boys own adventure about being a little Norman nobleman, but without the high-adrenaline exploits you might assume from that genre.

I thought the recording, though legible on high volume, was of relatively poor technical quality. I'm not refering to the readers here, but to the quality of the reproduction of sound: in one chapter it seemed to me like the volume rose and fell in sharp cycles, and in later chapters, the recording sounded very tinny.
